Thrift Store

I don't always find items at the Thrift Store I can put in the shop. More often than none, I find items for me, or the house. When the tornado came through our state in April, we had planned a brunch at church.

We was determined to have this brunch even though there was no power at the church.

I gather candles, opened blinds and tried to come up with a way to take HOT coffee for the ones that still did not have power.

I thought if I had one of these carafe for hot coffee, I could give the people that had been without power for Days, a little coffee. Hot Coffee.

But I could not find one.

But now thanks to our Goodwill, I have one.

And I also found this over night bag.

Both still have the tags.

I love the thrift store.

My friends know I have been working on a shower/ fall wedding lately. And yesterday was the shower.

My niece Kindra is marring Jon Whitlock.


I decorated for the shower. Kindra is a simple country girl.

Works in the barn, with the cows and horses. She is a 4-H agent and has always enjoyed the farm.

So I wanted our guest to see how much fun jon and kindra have. And through these pictures you can see that.

I do think they are in love.

He is a romantic little devil, he surprises her all the time. I pray he keeps doing this. It will help, in this day and time. When I think of Kindra I remember the pearls Jon gave her for her birthday, so I added pearls to each table, the milk glass vases are her mothers, and Kindra likes PIES.

So all we had was pies. Interesting menu. But everyone enjoyed it.

Now on to the wedding, on a farm,wedding in a meadow and reception in a barn. This is going to be interesting. I can't wait.

There is a new show on these days called


Have you see it?

Tuesday @ 9 on Lifetime

I have a few things to say about it so grab a chair and have a seat.


Really, do you really think these girls will pick through all the spider webs and dirty, nasty things you need to, to get to the good stuff.


But they wont have to, cause they have someone who will do it for them...

Boy, are they missing out, if indeed they are true pickers.


And I have to try and explain to hubby what I have in mind and this is the hardest part.

We don't see eye to eye.

Most of the time I can't relay to him the vision, I have.

This is very hard!!!


I do love the vision the girls have ( or the producers) and the re pour they have with their handyman.

And I love his work.

I also love that he has it ready in less than a hour.

T.V Time, gotta love it!

So I will tune in again,

and maybe try to get hubby to watch,

maybe it will help him, if nothing else.
